The plugin has no external dependencies. It comes bundled with a minimized version of the javascript libraries.

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

In order to create the diagrams there is a free Chrome app that runs locally. Alternatively the app Camunda Modeler can be download for free.


  • Full BPMN 2.0 support (thanks to the toolkit)
  • Rendering the diagrams from embedded XML fully implemented


Basic syntax:

    BPMN XML goes here....
  • The xml from the editor should be pasted between the tags

Change Log

ToDo/Wish List

  • Integrate the editor
  • Support loading from dokuwiki media
  • Support saving edited diagrams back to dokuwiki media


Will bpmnio work with PDF export plugins like dw2pdf?

Answer: Unfortunately, no. Bpmnio renders all diagrams on the client-side (in your browser) using Javascript. The DW2PDF Plugin creates PDFs on the server-side, where Javascript, and thus bpmnio, is unavailable. So any server-side export like that will contain the raw XML code, not the rendered diagrams.

You can however export a PDF with the rendered diagrams from your browser by “printing to PDF.” This functionality is built in on OS X and Linux (look for “file” and “PDF” options in your print dialog), and you can add third-party “PDF printer” software to Windows.
